for librarians, researchers and educators interested in information management
Yesterday I received a reviewer invitation to peer-review an article, and I was reminded of a twitter conversation I had a week or so back with colleagues about the tendency of reviewers not to provide any positive feedback and focus solely on the paper’s weaknesses, which can be pretty disheartening for the author. Not sure why this is the case – maybe reviewers come to the task already feeling grumpy about what can seem like a thankless task.
Just in case you are wondering – No, my reviewer invitation did not come with beer and cheesecake!
However, donations are welcome.
